I know it's corny and you may have already done it... but what about an electronic Battleship game?
2  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: College/Cheap but not horribly unhealthy ideas on: September 08, 2005 08:36:39 PM
My roommate and I just moved off-campus, and since I do all the cooking, I am THRILLed to see this post! What we've eating a lot is just plain old stir-fry. She had never heard of it, but I grew up eating it.

Basically, start with rice, and then chop up whatever vegetables you've got... celery, onions, and carrots are a good start. Garlic is nice if you've got it, water chestnuts add some crunch... whatever you want. Some people scramble an egg or two and put it in, but I'm not a fan of eggs. Add leftover meat if you've got it (we used one of those rotisserie chickens for three meals... not bad for $5). Fry it all up with some rice and butter. Season it or add some soy sauce.

Takes maybe 30 minutes if you're not using instant rice, so quick and easy however you look at it. Also cheap enough to feed a study group.

You could embroider images of model-type girls... I'm thinking like Jeffrey Fulvimari's work. You can check out his website here: http://www.jeffreyfulvimari.com/eng/index_h.html

Something random I did my freshman year... my school wasn't big on me writing on the walls (go figure), so I put quotations on the walls by cutting out individual letters from magazines, flyers, etc. and spelling everything out. It didn't fill a whole lot of space, but it did give my room a slightly different flavor from all the others on my hall.

Christmas lights (if you're allowed to have them... we weren't) are great, as are hanging paper lanterns.

Don't overlook the dollar store in your town. It's especially great when you want to decorate for holidays... don't spend a lot of money on stuff you're not keeping up all year.

Yeah, I'm not much help. My dorm room was not the most exciting; let's hope my first house turns out better!

Well, here's my take on it... see if you can find vintage pin-up or pulp fiction pictures, and frame those. You'll need a vanity... if you can't afford one, use a desk and find a mirror and lighting (check out IKEA, I think they have something like that for cheap). Hot pink and black accents, maybe something with leopard or zebra print...? This is sounding less and less like "vintage model" and more and more like my dream room. Sorry about that.  Grin

May I ask if the formal was at a country club? It looks almost identical to one my highschool formals were held at.

Writing on the walls would be a lot of fun... my friend works at a campus newspaper, and journalism students there have been scribbling on the walls for about 20 years now. Inside jokes, preserved for decades...

Maybe from the pipes (assuming they're overhead) you could hang random objects, paper lanterns, string white Christmas lights, etc. Odd postcards and old magazine pages are fun when framed in simple black.

A shirt I made my sister for her birthday:
Stopping Traffic, since 1985.

Maybe it's my computer screen... but I can't see the fabric very well.  Sad Oh well, even with what I can see, I can tell it's cute.
